Just one day after entering his name into the NCAA transfer portal, Curtis Dunlap has reportedly pulled his name out. We still don’t know exactly what prompted Dunlap to enter his name, but this is a massive development for PJ Fleck and the Minnesota Gophers.

I haven’t looked into anything at all and some might call it irresponsible journalism to say this, but since nobody else cares about that these days, neither do I.

HOPEFULLY, Dunlap was on his out of town because he wants to play football in 2020 and HOPEFULLY, PJ Fleck was able to give him inside information about a pending fall Big Ten season, that talked him off the ledge…. HOPEFULLY

There were some rumors floating about other guys dissenting too. We can all cross our fingers and pray that Dunlap’s “recommitment” will calm those waters. As of now, the Gophers go back to returning their entire 2019 offensive line, should a 2020 season be played.

Both IMG Academy O-lineman currently on roster, Curtis Dunlap Jr. and Daniel Faalele, have NFL aspirations. Dunlap, especially, blossomed as a Sophomore. What happens next, regarding Dunlap or when Minnesota will take the football field again, is anyone’s guess.

But this is a victory we will gladly take.
